Kittitas County Comprehensive Plan Compliance – Public Involvement Plan

As a result of the Order Following Remand from Washington State Supreme Court in matters 07-1-0004c and 07-1-0015 dated November 7th of 2011, Kittitas County has initiated work on the Comprehensive Plan Compliance 2012 project for compliance with the Growth Management Act (GMA). As part of this project, the County conducted early outreach activities in January 2012. These activities included preparation and distribution of a questionnaire that was responded to by various stakeholders. The results of this effort are presented in a Stakeholder Early Outreach report dated February 2012. As recommended by County staff in this report, the County has prepared a revised questionnaire. The purpose of the revised questionnaire is to discover residents' perception of "What is 'rural'?" and ways to preserve or manage characteristics of the rural environment they value.

If you wish to respond to these questions, please submit the answered questionnaire to Community Development Services, 411 North Ruby Street, Ellensburg 98296 before or at the upcoming Open House events in April and June, but no later than the end of the business day of June 15, 2012. Answers can also be emailed by June 15 to
